Default Filtered Coffee Benefits

It's too late for most of us lurking here, because we already have diabetes, but they say how you make coffee could ward off getting D.

I saw this in a bicycling article and there is a link to the study.

I totally quit coffee for years, but the majority of what I did drink probably wasn't paper filtered, but made in a pot with a metal basket and percolated. Since resuming coffee drinking in recent years, all of it at work has been paper filtered. All of it at home the last 3 years has been thru a Keurig with a reusable basket. I guess I'm too late for prevention benefits, but my Aeropress esspresso maker does use a paper filter.

Dunno... I grew up in a house where the coffee was on almost 7x24 and I'm here... (j/k; that's completely anecdotal and I know it).

This kind of information serves as yet another reminder of how little we know about how what we eat affects our health. We really should know more.

Paper filters were first used in 1908 in Germany. A lady named Melitta was trying to get the bitter taste out of her coffee and that's what she came up with. The company she started that resulted from her efforts, came to the US in 1963. I don't know when the US first started using paper filters, but the first coffee pot I saw using them was a Mr. Coffee drip coffee maker. I got one after I was married in 1976. My granddad used a stovetop Pyrex percolator for as long as I can remember. My parents had an electric percolator at some point in time.

It sounds like the paper filter must take something out of the coffee that is one of many potential environmental triggers for those of us genetically at risk for diabetes.
